OBJECTIVE: Investigate the association of rs17465637 gene MIAF3 (1q41), rs1376251 gene TAS2R50 (12p13), rs4804611 gene ZNF627 (19p13), rs619203 gene ROS1 (6q22), rs1333049 (9p21), rs10757278 (9p21), rs2549513 (16q23), rs499818 (6p24) associated with myocardial infarction available from the international genome-wide studies with sudden cardiac death (SCD) in a case-control study. METHODS: A sample of SCD cases (n=285) was formed using the WHO criteria; the control sample (n=421) was selected according to sex and age...

Lack of awareness among the first contact physicians is one of the major causes for delay in reperfusion therapy in India. Physicians need not only clear-cut guidance about when to perform an ECG and when to refer a patient but also need to understand the mortality advantage of early intervention as well as medico-legal aspects of this condition.

OBJECTIVE: To perform a comparative analysis of in-hospital results obtained from patients with acute ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), who underwent rescue or primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The aim is to determine rescue PCI as a practical option for patients with no immediate access to primary PCI. METHODS: From the Cardiology PCI Clinic of the National Hospital of Sri Lanka (NHSL), we selected all consecutive patients presenting with acute STEMI </=24h door-to-balloon delay for primary PCI and </=72h door-to-balloon delay, (90min after failed thrombolysis) for rescue PCI, from March 2013 to April 2015 and their in-hospital results were analyzed, comparing rescue and primary PCI patients...

BACKGROUND: Population access to timely reperfusion is a decisive factor in determining the success and acceptability of any regional system of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) care. We sought to determine the proportion of population of the southern Indian state of Kerala having timely access to STEMI reperfusion. METHODS: We identified the STEMI reperfusion facilities available at all acute-care hospitals, in Kerala, by conducting a cross-sectional survey...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the relationship between neutrophil-lymphocytes ratio (NLR) at admission and patient outcome over a period of six month in subjects with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). METHODS: A total of 435 consecutive patients presenting with ACS were enrolled and 400 patients completed the study. Patients were categorized into 2 groups: the NLR group 1 (NLR≤5.25; n=265, 66.25%) and the NLR group 2 (NLR>5.25; n=135, 33.75%). The primary outcomes were in-hospital and 6 months mortality...

BACKGROUND: Primary angioplasty (PCI) for acute myocardial infarction is associated with no-reflow phenomenon, in about 5-25% of cases. Here we analysed the factors predicting no reflow . METHODS: This was a case control study of consecutive patients with acute myocardial infarction who underwent Primary PCI from August 2014 to February 2015. RESULTS: Of 181 patients who underwent primary PCI, 47 (25.9%) showed an angiographic no-reflow phenomenon...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the impact of gender in outcomes of patients with ST segment myocardial infarction in a setting with limited access to primary percutaneous coronary intervention METHODS: In 1017 consecutive patients hospitalized with ST segment myocardial infarction during years 2008-2013, distribution of risk factors, therapeutic methods, heart failure and in-hospital mortality were compared between males and females. Association of gender and primary outcomes was determined after adjustment for confounding factors...

BACKGROUND: Post-infarction ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a rare but lethal mechanical complication of an acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Survival to 1 month without intervention is 6%. Given high surgical mortality, transcatheter closure has emerged as a potential strategy in selected cases. Indian data on percutaneous device closure of post AMI-VSR is scarce hence we report our single-centre experience with ASD occluder device (Amplatzer and lifetech) for closure of post-AMI VSR...

OBJECTIVE: Syntax score (SX) has emerged as a reproducible angiographic tool to quantify the extent of coronary artery disease based on location and complexity of each lesion. It has been shown to predict long-term clinical outcomes in patients with left main or multi-vessel disease and recently also in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction undergoing primary PCI. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the syntax score is associated with short-term cardiovascular outcomes in patients treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI)...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Ischemic heart disease is the leading cause of death in India. In high-income countries, pre-hospital systems of care have been developed to manage acute manifestations of ischemic heart disease, such as acute coronary syndrome (ACS). However, it is unknown whether guidelines, policies, regulations, or laws exist to guide pre-hospital ACS care in India. We undertook a nation-wide document analysis to address this gap in knowledge. METHODS AND RESULTS: From November 2014 to May 2016, we searched for publicly available emergency care guidelines and legislation addressing pre-hospital ACS care in all 29 Indian states and 7 Union Territories via Internet search and direct correspondence...

METHODS: Two groups according to the presence of fQRS in ECG. RESULTS: fQRS has higher sensitivity for LAD, LCX &RCA, more specific for LAD. CONCLUSIONS: fQRS is a good, simple, applicable positive test to predict the presence of significant CAD in acute coronary syndrome (ACS), even without enzyme elevation.
